Note: This event
was initially scheduled for Feb. 20 and has been moved to Feb. 19 due to
inclement weather forecasted for Feb. 20.
The opening reception for two exhibits — "Shading"
by Australian artist Catherine Schieve and "Artifacts from the Hamilton
Woodtype and Printing Museum" — will be held from 7:30-9 p.m. Feb. 19 in
the Foster Gallery of the Haas Fine Arts Center at UW-Eau Claire. Schieve will
attend the reception, which also will include an 8 p.m. performance by UW-Eau
Claire professor of music and flutist Dr. Tim Lane.
Foster Gallery also will be open from 2-4:30 Feb. 19, with
an artist lecture by Schieve scheduled for 3 p.m.
In "Shading," Schieve combines hieroglyphics as
musical score and art — various forms of music performed in traditional and
experimental methods, both instrumental and vocal — to visual cues in a 40-foot two-dimensional painting.
"Artifacts from the Hamilton Woodtype and Printing
Museum" is an exhibition of the tools and images of the first great
information revolution: letterpress printing. Founded in 1880, within 20 years
the Hamilton Type Company of Two Rivers, Wis., became the largest manufacturer
of wood type in the U.S., aided by the abundance of wood found in Wisconsin
forests. Wood type, broadsides and more will be on display.
Both exhibits will be on display in Foster Gallery through
March 13. Starting Feb. 20, Foster Gallery hours will be 10 a.m.-4:30 p.m.
weekdays, 6-8 p.m. Thursdays and 1-4:30 p.m. weekends.
